Like I said, I'm still FAR from a fashion forward trendsetter, but that's mainly because I prefer to be more practical in my purchases and personal style. However, it's been fun to actually pay attention to the ads and spreads in my fashion magazines and taking note of what celebrities are wearing before anyone else.
Last winter, when I picked up my beloved Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Mini in Stormy Grey, I had also posted a variety of other grey bags. Turns out, as I was watching my daily dose of E! News last evening, the TrendE! segment listed grey bags as MUST HAVE for this Fall.... was I ahead of the curve? is this now going mainstream? or was I just into something while it really wasn't a big deal and now coincidentally is?... not really sure, but I'd like to go on record with picking out a potential new trend-to-be.
If you watched the Emmy's Red Carpet, you noticed one color in particular was flooding the carpet in a sea of .... NAVY (yes, I'm sorry, I love a good pun... I couldn't resist!).
I know the "of the moment" looks right now include anything and everything military -especially anything in army green and lace up boots (combat or bootie), the color camel, suedes/velvets/and texture, and more feminine touches like lace and the return of the full or circle skirt -thanks Mad Men!
After watching the Emmy's, I'm going to guess that Navy will rear its pretty and versatile head at this upcoming NY Fashion Week (kicking off this Friday)... but only time will tell if I'm wrong. Maybe it won't be in abundance this Fall/Winter, but a future Spring/Summer color?
What do you readers think? Have you seen a ton of navy in ads or on the runways? Do you like to guess what new trends will be big? Any new trend predictions you want to share??
Stay tuned for In the Navy Part 2 :)
